Guide/Version-Specific Mod Recommendations

Version-specific Recommendations must use a Version string equal to that of both ModList and Guide!Copy/paste the intended guide version from the "Existing Guides" table above (if it exists) into the field below.Editors: Please DO NOT use wiki headings inside of custom Recommendations and also avoid using templates if at all possible! Template calls add to the max threshold, and headings mess up the guide ToC.

Recommendations

Download "Grass Control" from Main Files and install as normal.

Also Download "Grass Generation MO Plugin v1" and open it in 7-Zip.

  1. From Windows Explorer, navigate to C:/Modding/Tools/Mod Organizer/plugins
  2. Drag GrassPrecacher.py into the MO Plugins directory.
  3. Close and restart MO.
Grass Configuration

The following configuration applies to all users, regardless of whether or not grass LOD will be generated using DynDLOD. Precaching grass is necessary for this mod to resolve some specific stuttering issues when loading cells outdoors in grassy areas. Precaching also generally improves performance in these areas. Precaching grass is also required by DynDOLOD to generate grass LOD, but this mod has nothing to do with grass LOD otherwise:

Modify Config

NOTE: DynDOLODGrassMode is coupled to DynDOLOD SSE GrassLargeReference INI setting, so be certain to change that setting as noted on that mod page.

  1. Double click on the mod in the MO left pane
  2. Click on the "Text Files" tab to modify GrassControl.config.txt
  3. Find the following settings and edit as follows:
UseGrassCache = True

ExtendGrassDistance = True OverwriteGrassDistance = 24000 OverwriteGrassFadeRange = 12000 OverwriteMinGrassSize = 60 OnlyLoadFromCache = True

DynDOLODGrassMode = 0

NOTE

Ignore the following when installing NGIO. This will be done later in the guide.
Precache Grass

This process will take between 20-120 minutes to complete, depending on hardware. There is no need to monitor or click 'OK' when restarts occur.

  1. Click the MO Tools button in MO, and select "Precache Grass"
  2. If previous instructions were followed, a new /grass/ directory containing precached *.cgid files will appear within the SKSE64 mod. Otherwise, it will appear in the MO Overwrite folder (if so, drag the /grass/ folder into the SKSE64 mod) AND revisit previous instructions!
